My Italy Diary: Florence, Part 5

Our last day in Italy was spent visiting Palazzo Vecchio, which is still used as the town hall and Palazzo Pitti, which we didn’t get enough time in when we visited early in the week with Donna and Mary. There is a replic a Michaelangelo’s “David” in front of the Palazzo Vecchio. The original is now inside the Galleria dell’ Accademia.

The grand salone is lined on both sides with statues of the “Deed of Hercules” by De Rossi—striking in their homoerotism.

The Geographical Map room, “Mappa Mundi”.
